A MUCH SOUGHT AFTER KEYNOTE SPEAKER ON THE GLOBAL IMPACT OF PURPOSE DRIVEN, SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS AND A NATURAL BORN LEADER WHO SEES BUSINESS AS A TOOL FOR GOOD
Amy defined what makes a “social entrepreneur” long before the term became "de rigueur". From the moment she started on her entrepreneurial journey in business, after an inspiring gap year as an 18 year old, she was certain that life was about having a net positive impact.
Driven by this purpose in life, she inspired her husband, Neal, to move to Mozambique to develop, build & create an eco-boutique hotel, Guludo Beach Lodge with the local community, that would go on to become a multi-award winning business, held up as a shining example and case study on the sustainable impact that it is possible to achieve in the travel & tourism industry; from a 24 bed property, more than 25,000 people are being lifted out of poverty. Using an innovative approach to charitable giving, Amy founded a UK registered charity, Nema Foundation, to achieve these goals.
Amy’s passion for impact, purpose driven businesses blows your mind, when she shares her thoughts on the many amazing ways entrepreneurs can “walk the talk” and lead by example to create a more sustainable approach to some of the many global challenges facing the world today.
Now a mother of 2 small children, today her drive & purpose have become even more focussed; how can we (entrepreneurs) create a more balanced & sustainable world for the next generation. Amy truly believes that the Travel & Tourism industry can and should play a key role in defining the answer to this question.
The future will be a much brighter place if we all take the lead from Amy. Watch this space, some big ideas are about to be formed.
